Name: Lara Dempler
HIghest level of education: some college
Major: Early child Education- CDA certification and Parapro Professional Assessment
I have several years working with SSU and got to experience working with children with learning disabilities, social and behavior issues, Autism,ADHD , verbal and nonverbal students. I worked several years with the program and returned for a short time after having my children. I then went into the preschool program for several years before returning to elementary age children. I have close to 20 years experience working with students from preschool to elementary age.
I have been married for 20 years and have two daughters. We enjoy going to the drive-in and camping in the summer and during the winter months we curl up on the couch with a good movie. We stay busy with archery. I coach the Canaan archery team and I help my husband who coaches the Madison Jr and Sr High School archery teams. I enjoy coaching and love to watch the archers accomplish so much in a season. We also live on a small farm where we have cows, goats, horses and I can’t forget our dogs and cats.
I love working with kids, I always have. I love watching a student accomplish something they have been struggling with or just help them find a solution with a social issue. I love to see their eyes light up when they are excited about something. There is never a boring moment with children and you will never feel more loved than you do in a classroom full of them. I really enjoy my job and I am blessed to be able to work at Canaan Community Academy, we are truly a school family.Contact:Rhonda Pennington, Chief Academic Officer(812) 839-0003
